Opening of Feltrinelli Porta Volta
MILAN, ITALY, 13 December 2016 – Feltrinelli Porta Volta was officially opened today with inaugural speeches by Jacques Herzog, Carlo Feltrinelli, President of Fondazione Feltrinelli, and several leading figures and politicians from Italy.

“Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli has created an area of citizenship which is available to all” writes the Fondazione. It has relocated its headquarters to the building in Porta Volta, which it considers an ideal environment for the foundation’s multiple activities.

Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron said: “The redefinition of Porta Volta holds an important strategic potential for creating a positive impact on the entire surrounding area. In that sense, this undertaking by a private client - the Feltrinelli Group - has an important urban dimension, strengthening and reinforcing the City of Milan.”
